White out conditions between clear spells.

10th January 2015

After a very mild wet and windy night (plus 4 on the summit) the freezing level quickly plummeted to minus 7 C on the tops first thing today. Blizzard conditions followed during the heavy showers, with gust of over 100 mph at summit levels.

 

Strong winds with lots of spindrift, this was one of the clear spells between heavy snow showers.
